Let me get this straight. The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office substation in south Augusta costs $1 a month to rent. Are you telling me that in all of that time the department would not take responsibility for upkeep – they just let it deteriorate? Sounds like the rest of south Augusta – low rent with no accountability.
It’s no wonder the place is a mess. I can remember when pride and a work ethic meant something. South Augusta was a very clean, nice place. This attitude of “use it and throw it away” instead of fixing it is another example of why our society is in trouble. OK, so you’re leaving a deteriorating, already-crime-ridden place to further deteriorate and breed more crime because the building is a mess? How much would it have cost to keep it from getting that way? How much is it going to cost to move?
